Winograd Schema Challenge
In this episode, Hector Levesque joins us to discuss an alternative way to measure a machine’s intelligence, called Winograd Schema Challenge. An offshoot of the Turing Test, the Winograd Schema Challenge aims to determine how well AI handles commonsense reasoning. The challenge tasks a computer to answer a specific type of simple, commonsense question called a pronoun disambiguation problem. Questions are posed in a way that tests the agent’s understanding the basics about how the world works and implementing that knowledge in useful and accurate ways.
